Solar energy company Engenera Renewables has unveiled the hiring of new key members of its team as the firm eyes a UK-wide expansion.
The expansion of the company’s team will allow it to broaden its impact in the energy and solar sector. The firm is currently working to support a range of renewable technologies such as solar PV and battery storage, air and ground source heat pumps, combined heat and power, electric vehicle charging points and LED lighting.
Chris Alete has joined the company as chief financial officer with 22 years’ experience working with private equity and venture capital-backed business. Alongside this, Engenera has appointed Simon Okeke, as D365 and power platforms developer.
In this role, Okeke will use data and digital transformation to conduct better business analysis while ensuring uniformity and integrity of the data being collected by everyday system users.
The company also appointed two project managers and an admin support.
“This is a very exciting time for the business. We are in a phase of exponential growth for the company as more and more businesses want to examine their carbon footprint and the benefits of reducing this,” said Lloyd Lawson, chief strategy officer at Engenera.
“But our clients also want to understand the holistic picture around embracing renewable energy and see us as their long-term decarbonisation partner of choice. On the back of this growth, all these hires will strength the company across the board and leave us well placed to continue to offer a superb service to our clients.”
The company recently stated it would develop the ‘largest’ solar park with a private wire connection in the UK. The 20MW solar park is set to power a Nissan manufacturing facility in Sunderland.
The landmark project will comprise of more than 36,000 solar panels and be situated near a Nissan owned manufacturing facility.
Late last year, Engenera completed the installation of 610 solar PV panels on the roof of St. Mary’s Catholic School in Newcastle – the first of 12 school solar PV installations.
The installation at St. Mary’s Catholic School can produce 210kW of green energy annually, with this projected to give the school a cost saving of over £900,000 over a 20-year period.
